Temporary Strainer Pressure Drop Charts

 

You can use the differential pressure charts below to estimate the approximate clean pressure drop across a temporary cone strainer or temporary basket strainer.  The chart data is based upon water and perforations ranging from 1/8" to 1/16".

To approximate the pressure drop for mesh lined temporary cone and basket strainers, apply the following multipliers to the chart data.

 

 

As an example, the estimated clean differential pressure for a flow rate of 60 GPM with a 2" size temporary cone or basket strainer is 2 PSI; if it were a 60 mesh lined configuration, it would be 2 PSI x 1.4 =  2.8 PSI.
